Re: Gullseye League Season 5

NO sweat Steve, mirrors the real life end to the season for us.
My league is 4 x 8 team divisions, must post it up one day. It runs from January to November, I got my first set as a Xmas gift hence the season timings.

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

Subbuteo is diverse, and long may it continue. True Paul but really it comes down to mindset .. the chaps you mention who I would agree are good at what they do play Sports Table Football or the old Table Soccer and good luck to them .. I'd rather just play with the OS lads who certainly in the UK ...

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

The thing with certain Flats players like Dave Collet, regardless of the ball size is the way they can keep possession, in using the word 'you' I was referring to all players, as thats they way he plays. A good subbuteo player can use any ball pitch and still be good, after a short period of adaptin...

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

the point I was making was that I have seen these chaps play (at close quarters) and they are excellent players with the big ball - the small ball makes for an entirely different game like I say right and wrong doesn't come into it .. I doubt I will ever know for sure but on the upside nobody reall...

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

Or you me, no disrepect to you mate, but there are what can be called top quality players of flats, who use them in all formats of the game, size of ball would not affect their standards at all. Kev Dyson, by the way uses a four man defence and plays FISTF with flats and scores plenty,. However what...

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

Would love to see you play Dave Collet that way, see if you get the ball off him, regardless of size

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

Flats are great to play with, however you need to practice to get the gist of the swerve and spinning totally different to 00. I have been privileged to have both seen and played against the greatest exponents of Flats over the past 40+ years. Seeing the likes of Dave Collett, Mike Dent, Kev Dyson, ...
